Business person of the year
I am very proud to have won business person of the year at the FLB awards recently. The Judges felt that Allison epitomised what was great about both living and creating a successful business in this corner of the Cotswolds, bringing her extensive experience of working for top London design agencies to help local entrepreneurs create dynamic and meaningful brands. Many of those identities you see every day have been designed and implemented by Allison; Made By Bob, Thyme at Southrop, Butler Sherborn, Lynwood & Co and Fairford! Her business is all word of mouth recommendations and she also works to encourage young people into the industry through the school career circuit. The judges were extremely impressed with the scale of her business and Allison’s ethos. Nice words.

November 17, 2017 Cotswold school careers fayre
I was asked to attend the Cotswold school annual careers fayre to promote a future in graphic design and what it entails. I was inundated with enthusiatic children who were interested in pursuing a creative career. To be able to open their minds to the opportunites for creative and imaginative individuals in the wide world of design was a humbling experience for me. I could honestly say that I am as passionate about design today as I was when I first started off myself as a student many years ago.

May 25, 2017 Teasel England, evolves!!
I created the original branding for Hannah Shaw over 6 years ago. With her recent move to new premises and the introduction of more contemporary fabrics, it was felt that the branding now needed to reflect the newer direction Teasel England was taking. The original idea of the fabric Teasel head was developed into a graphic version along with the introduction of a new colour palette for the branding.
